Repeatable? Definitely. Using the same film, cross-processing has perfectly repeatable results, but it helps to be specific: the negatives will turn out the same, positives (virtually always scans) may not, and it's the positives you see on Flickr and elsewhere. The reasons for this are pretty simple: both the film emulsions and processing chemistry (both ...


UPDATE: After searching for similar answers I found a question on how to do cross-processing. This led to an answer with a link to instructions on how to do it in GIMP. Aviary has a set of free image/photo editing software available as a web app. However, if you really want to do cross processing, you should invest in software that will allow you to edit ...


I worked in a professional photo lab for a number of years. Cross Processing was something that guys like Scott Clum and Trevor Graves were using for their photography back in the pioneering days of snowboarding. The effect produced is very striking. The most common characteristics of cross processing is contrast and extreme color crossovers. Crossovers ...


Yes it is possible, and this is referred to as "Cross Processing" Regarding the expected results, there is a good quote from wikipedia. Cross processing It is also possible to cross-process slide film for the E-6 process in C-41 , which yields negatives with a color shift and stronger saturation. (C-41 also may be processed in E-6 yielding ...


You can use the Gimp - it's free software, but not a webapp. It doesn't have the great adobe usability experience, but if you know the specific adjustments you want to make, you can make it work for you. You could also try, but i don't know if it has the degree of control you need.

2 has a couple color related effect you can apply, including "Duo-Tone" and "Cross Process". It's free to use, but some of the other effects require paying for access.


The results are actually pretty repeatable if (and that is important for ALL darkroom work) you keep all variables the same. You will have to use the same chemicals, the same development times and the same temperatures. Even the same drums/tanks. If you vary at least one of the variables the result get less predictable. This applies to standard color and ...


The reason is to achieve this special "cross-processed" look with colder shadows, warmer highlights and more color contrast. In film photography results are repeatable only for the given exact combination of film, chemicals and the developing process details: length, temperature, etc. In digital photography results are absolutely repeatable. However ...


I think that in looking at the software you are overlooking something really important: The hardware. Different scanners, as with different cameras, use different sensor elements. You do not specify the model of the lab scanner, but let's assume it is the KODAK Professional RFS 3570 Film Scanner, you can buy a second-hand one of these for about £1.7k. ...


I interpret "free online" as "can be downloaded for free online". Image View Plus More 2.7 can do it. It has the "curves" like photoshop that you can change as vectors (insert points and drag them to change) and you can change 9 different things with those curves. To change one and then another you click "Incorporate" between each transformation. In the ...


Fotor has many vintage effects. It's a online photos editor,simple but really powerful. I have been using it for a period and I think it's handy and effective. You can have a try.:)


Daniel Box had developed a bunch of instagram-like filters implemented as photoshop actions. They are free and pretty good. You may give it a try


Picasa allows to apply a cross-process filter to picture, as well as other lo-fi style filters. It's not a very configurable filter though, and you can just regulate the intensity, while the tone is preset. The output is pleasant, IMHO. EDIT: Now I realize that you were looking for online tools :) this is not online, but it's free and it does the job, ...


Just playing around in LR on an image of my own, I used a simple cross process technique with a bit of light tone reduction. I used the "Inside Lightroom COL Cross Processed" preset. It also looks like there's a white texture added to several of the images.


Presets are a Lightroom thing. What you need are actions or plugins. Many plugins and actions for Photoshop are compatible with PS Elements. I think if you search on Actions for Photoshop Elements you may find a number of them. I have tried out actions, and I've found that an action that works well on one image looks terrible with others. I've found it ...


Cross processing (running an E6 film in C41 chemistry) results in different colors based on both the film and the chemistry used to process it. Films are generally known to more-often-than-not shift to one color. Velvia shifts red, Elite Chrome shifts green, etc. But, the intensity of those shifts often depends on the chemistry. The camera has very little to ...


The “misty” look in the first image is probably due to some internal reflections caused by strong direct light entering the lens. You could try that, but it could also turn out horrible, especially if you don't use high-end lenses. Another way to reproduce it would be to lift a bit the brightness of the whole scene in post processing - not the “exposure” ...


A great deal of what's going on here is really just color management/matching/profiling. Different films have rather specific "looks", and to get the best out of each, you just about have to profile the scanner with each film. That was common/typical with the high-end professional scanners. If memory serves, some even scanned the bar code that's on the edge ...


This is actually quite popular and is know as cross-processing. It will usually result in wild saturated colors. Google has all the info (and I mean all the info, this is really big).
